  • 3 ½ oz (100g) of whipping cream
  • 1 egg
  • 3 ½ oz (100g) flour
  • ½ oz (15g) of baking powder
  • 2oz (65g) of almond powder
  • 2oz (65g) of hazelnut powder
  • 7oz (200g) of honey
  • 1 zest of an orange
  • ¾ tsp (3g) of cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp (2g) of salt
  • ¼ tsp (2g) of cloves
  • ¼ tsp (2g) of juniper
  • ¼ tsp (2g) of ginger
  • ¼ tsp (2g) of anise
  • 1/8 tsp (1g) of Sichuan pepper
  • 1/8 tsp (1g) of cardamom


  • Boil cream with honey, add spices and blend.
  • Cover mixture and set aside.
  • Combine flour, salt, baking powder, hazelnut powder and almond powder.
  • Strain cream and add to flour with egg, combine well with a spatula.
  • Pour batter into a cake mold (buttered in necessary) and let rest at room temperature.
  • Pre-heat oven to 340°F (170°C) and cook for 40 minutes.
  • At the end of cooking time, unmold cake on a rack.


When it is cool, wrap it in plastic wrap and it will keep several days.
Those who have a sweet tooth will add some candied fruit during preparation.
Ginger bread is ideal for snacks but it is also a handy ingredient for cooking in general. I particularly suggest:

  • Use it for Crème brûlée with ginger bread or break some pieces in a chocolate mousse
  • Toast it and serve with foie gras (foie gras terrine or sautéed foie gras)
  • Add it to simmered dishes such as Flemish stews made with stew beef and Trappist beer
